Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you have a rental plan?
Yes we do. We rent all of our student instruments for very affordable monthly payments.
Our Standard Rental plan offers month-to-month payments with 15% interest and the opportunity to return the instrument to us after a period of time with no further cost.
Our 24-month Interest Free Rent-to-Own plan offers customers the chance to pay low monthly payments with 0% interest for 24 months to own their instrument.
We have a local rental program, available to Utah and Southern California Residents, as well as a national rental program, available anywhere in the United States.
2. Do you have a warranty?
We offer a 5 year limited warranty against manufacturer's defects in materials and workmanship. This warranty applies to any of our own lines of instruments: Paganini, Bouvier, and Satriani lines.

4. Do you sell out of state?
Yes. We sell instruments to anyone, anywhere. If you are interested in one of our instruments, but do not live near any of our locations we can ship the instrument to you.
5. Do you rent/sell brass, percussion, or woodwind instruments?
No. As a violin shop we only have violins, violas, cellos, and basses in stock.
6. If we like one of your instruments is there a way we can show it our teacher prior to purchasing?
Yes. We have what is called a "Short Term Rental" program. If you are interested in purchasing an instrument from us and desire your teacher to approve it prior to purchasing you can check it out for up to a week. We just fill out some paperwork and you are free to take the instrument to your teacher.. Click here if you are from out of state for more information about instrument trials.
7. Do your instruments come with a bow and case?
Yes, all instruments under $5,000 come with a bow and case free of charge; the instruments above $5,000 comes with a case only. If you wish to purchase a bow we will give you a generous discount. We do not give a bow for instruments above $5,000 because the quality of bow necessary for an instrument of that caliber would be too much to give away. For the instruments under $5,000 the case and bow will be different depending upon the level of instrument you purchase. Generally the bow will be worth about 10% of the instrument. The case will differ from instrument to instrument.
8. Do you offer financing on any of your instruments?
No, unfortunately we do not offer financing for our instruments. This may change in the future, but at the moment we cannot.
